summer is tiki-drink time

Your personal bad influence is back on the job!  ;-)  This creation was so easy i can't bear to take credit for it -- it's based on the Floridita daiquiri in Dr. Cocktail's wonderful book "Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails."  Enjoy!

SUGAR FREE RASPBERRY DAIQUIRI (makes 2)

1 cup ice cubes, crushed in a blender
4 oz. white or amber rum
1 oz. sugar-free raspberry syrup (Torani or Da Vinci)
1 oz. lime juice

After the ice is crushed, pour in the other ingredients and blend well.  Needless to say, it will be easy to make any flavor you prefer by changing the syrup.  I just happen to keep raspberry around for many purposes.

    1. you're welcome! something made me thirsty, the other day, for a frozen strawberry daiquiri -- I used to use the mix that comes frozen, and it contains a LOT of HFCS ... so I figured, it can't be too hard to replicate "innocently" :-D

  2. Summer could also be Pimms or just a good old fashioned gin and tonic !

    All the best Jan
